“Decent Hunan Food”
Reviewed February 12, 2012

They have all the usual suspects here, spicy eggplant, spicy ribs, hot pots, whole fish, spicy shrimp on skewers, etc,. The menu with pictures is also very helpful! My pet peeves? All restaurants in Shanghai always seem to bring the rice at the very, very, end and they charge for the little towels, the tea and the peanuts.. Plus service once again is not always the best! Get's very crowded for lunch and dinner so try to come during off peak hours!

“an excellent restaurant”
Reviewed July 30, 2011

if you like Hunan food i.e. spicy Chinese food then this restaurant is of a high order. The place is modern - the company itself was only established a few years ago - the prices are very good and the food is good quality. My wife being from Hunan, always wants to eat in this place. It also is airconditioned - something that Shanghai does not seem to think people need.

If you are lucky you can get a window seat, which gives you a brilliant view Pearl Tower, HSBC buliding etc. It is lovely at night time.

This place does get busy and it is not unusual to see people waiting to be seated. For the quallity of the place it is very reasonable on the pocket. I would recommend eating here.

“Best Authentic Hunan in Shanghai”
Reviewed August 17, 2010

If you love spicy food this is the place to go. I highly reccomend the drypot fish or bullfrog, but really everything I've tried on the menu is good. The glass noodle with pork is great. Arrive early (before 6pm) otherwise you will wait forever to get in. The locals love this place.
